'A pavilion for entertaining and philanthropic events, this structure marries the client's love chinoiserie with the ranch's official mascot. Copper lizards climb the 42 ft. high pagoda; smaller versions adorn entrance doors. River rock and brick paving recall the gardens of Suzhou, while Venetian silk lanterns glow from the billowing bead-board ceiling.'
Um, wow....I have so many feelings about this amazing place -I would love to attend a party here! I love those wall panels backed with mirror, the huge french doors, the whimsical lizards crawling up the exterior and their use as handles on the beautiful forged iron doors(It's all in the details). This reminds me of the post Cote de Texas did on conservatories, orangeries and poolhouses; I think this falls under the label - expansive windows and a seperate pavilion if not entirely glass as her examples show. This especially reminds me of the famous garden pavilion she wrote about from the sound of music in Austria (if a little more exotic)!
